A ladder match is a type of match in professional wrestling, most commonly one in which an item is hung above the ring, and the winner is the contestant who climbs a ladder and retrieves the item. The ladder itself becomes a key feature of the match, as wrestlers will use the ladder as a weapon to strike the opponent(s), as a launching pad for acrobatic attacks, and frequently these matches include impressive falls from the top of the ladder. However, there were very few matches in which the hung item must be used in a special manner in order to win the match, such as striking the opponent with the item.

Production

Background

Halloween Havoc is a professional wrestling event currently produced by WWE. As the name implies, it is a Halloween-themed show held in October. It was originally produced as an annual pay-per-view by World Championship Wrestling (WCW) from 1989 until 2000 as WWE purchased WCW in 2001. The 2000 event was the final Halloween Havoc until WWE revived the show as an annual event for their developmental brand NXT in 2020.[1] The 2020 and 2021 events were held as television specials of the NXT program, but for 2022, it was held as a livestreaming event, airing on Peacock in the United States and the WWE Network in international markets.[2] The event was scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 22, 2022, at NXT's home base, the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. It was the 15th Halloween Havoc event overall and the third annual held for NXT.[3][4] After serving as the host of the 2020 event, it was announced that SmackDown wrestler Shotzi would return to NXT to host the 2022 Halloween Havoc. NXT wrestler Quincy Elliott earned the right to co-host the event with Shotzi after defeating Xyon Quinn in a match on the October 18 episode of NXT.[5]

NXT Halloween Havoc included several matches. The matches resulted from scripted storylines, where wrestlers portrayed heroes, villains, or less distinguishable characters to build tension and culminate in a wrestling match or series of matches. Results were predetermined by WWE's writers on the NXT brand, while storylines were produced on the weekly television program, NXT, and the supplementary online streaming show Level Up.[6][7]

After winning the NXT North American Championship on the final episode of NXT 2.0 on September 13 (which reverted to NXT), Solo Sikoa, who replaced Wes Lee due to an attack by the former champion Carmelo Hayes,[8] was informed by Shawn Michaels that he was stripped of the title because he was not sanctioned to compete in the match. After Sikoa was called up to the main roster on the SmackDown after debuting at Clash at the Castle two weeks prior, it was announced that Hayes and four other challengers would compete in a ladder match for the vacant championship. That same episode, Oro Mensah became the first to qualify by defeating Grayson Waller.[9] Over the next few weeks, Lee qualified by defeating Tony D'Angelo, Von Wagner qualified by defeating Andre Chase and Nathan Frazer qualified by defeating Axiom, which also served as the final match of their best of three series.[10][11][12]

On the September 20 episode of NXT, JD McDonagh defeated Tyler Bate to become the #1 contender for Bron Breakker's NXT Championship. Following the match, McDonagh was confronted by both Breakker and a returning Ilja Dragunov, who vacated the NXT United Kingdom Championship due to injury.[9] The following week, during another confrontation between the three, Breakker suggested a triple threat match for the NXT Championship, which was made official for Halloween Havoc.[10]

At NXT: The Great American Bash, Cora Jade and Roxanne Perez defeated Toxic Attraction (Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne) to win the NXT Women's Tag Team Championship.[13] After the match, Perez announced that she would cash in her NXT Women's Breakout Tournament contract for a NXT Women's Championship match the following week, where she lost to defending champion Mandy Rose after Jade turned on Perez and attacked her, turning heel and disbanding their team.[14] As a result, the NXT Women's Tag Team Championship was vacated.[15][16] Jade then defeated Perez at NXT Heatwave on August 16.[17] On the October 4 episode of NXT, Jade and Perez were the guests on the Waller Effect, hosted by Grayson Waller, where Waller announced that a rematch between the two at Halloween Havoc would be a Spin The Wheel, Make the Deal match. Waller then spun the wheel with it landing on a Weapons Wild match.[11]

At Worlds Collide, NXT Tag Team Champions The Creed Brothers (Brutus and Julius Creed) competed in a fatal four-way tag team elimination match to unify the NXT and NXT UK Tag Team Championship, and were the final team eliminated by Pretty Deadly (Elton Prince and Kit Wilson) after Diamond Mine teammate Damon Kemp attacked Julius, turning heel.[18] On the September 13 episode of NXT 2.0, the Creed Brothers failed to reclaim the titles from Pretty Deadly in a steel cage match, after Kemp handcuffed Julius to the cage, leaving Brutus to fight Pretty Deadly alone.[8] On the October 4 episode of NXT, Kemp announced that he and Julius would have a match at Halloween Havoc, with the stipulation that if Julius lost, Brutus would have to leave NXT. In turn, Julius chose his own stipulation in the form of an Ambulance match.[11]
